A bright and refreshing Provencal-style rosé with inviting aromas of red fruits and citrus and lively acid on the finish.

Muddled raspberry, savory herbs, gingerbread aromatics followed by quenching acidity and an uplifting finish.
The winery’s 2019 Pinot Noir Rosé pops on the palate, releasing a fruit-forward party in the mouth. But, wait, what’s that on the finish? Some subtle herbal quality and a mineral character that cause you to pause and reflect on what’s possible when vintners set out to make a memorable wine.

Vintage Notes

A wet, but warm spring with a few mild frosts during late April and fewer than average heat spikes. Near-record precipitation amounts during late June and early July brought increased disease pressure to the region.

The vintage will be remembered for the early rains in September and rapid cool down into October which challenged harvesting decisions.

The cool vintage came largely from substantially lower maximum temperatures while minimum temperatures were near average to slightly above average. A classic Oregon vintage!
